Fox, BET Pick Up 'The Real' for Fall 2014

Cable Network Grabs Second Window for Panel Talk Show

The Fox Television Stations will launch Warner Bros.’ The Real next fall, and the show also will air in a second cable window on BET.

The Real features five women — Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley — in a panel talk show format. The show will be executive produced by SallyAnn Salsano.

Fox tested The Real last summer for four weeks on WNYW New York, KTTV Los Angeles, WTTG Washington, D.C., WTXF Philadelphia, KSAZ Phoenix, KRIV Houston and WTVT Tampa to strong ratings results. Across all seven markets, The Real improved time-period performance by 40% among daytime’s key demographic of women 25-54.

Next fall, the show will air on 18 Fox-owned stations.
